Book Review-Diana Adores the Puzzled Earl: A Historical Regency Romance-Hannah Hamilton

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Well this was a reversal--a male has to ask a female to publish a book he wrote under her name. I mean way back then the Titled gents were not supposed to write travel novels with romance--it just wasn't done! But the Earl of Donnelly had done just that and he really wanted his book published. Even the publisher who liked the book would not publish it saying that it might affect his business adversely. But he had some suggestions and Diana Browning was one of them. She was also a writer of romance. They decided to give it a try.

Diana's family was in trouble and she could use the extra money--she also agreed to marry a young man if he could convince his father to give her father a loan. What a mess!

Diana and Robert, of necessity, had to work together frequently. Robert began to realize he loved Diana--but she was engaged to another man--so he kept his distance in that respect.

There are several other characters that deserve mention--the twins were Diana's friends and non stop fun and games. Robert's sister was not the nicest of people and even Queen Victoria makes an appearance.

Lots goes on and twists that will make your head spin! There is laughter (via the twins) and the elderly spinster ladies (also neighbors of Diana).

Can a Lord of the Realm and the daughter of a university professor and scholar make all this work--and what about them?

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Robert, the young and handsome Earl of Donnelly, has a great passion for writing novels but as part of the nobility, it is socially impossible for him to openly publish fiction in his own name.

As Diana and Robert begin to work together, they find they are becoming increasingly attracted to each other. But, Diana is engaged and unavailable.

However, circumstances contrive to bring many surprises, and nothing comes out as anyone quite expected.
